and a moral obscenity. on august 20, 2012, president obama said that the use of a, quote, whole bunch of chemical weapons in syria would be a red line. now almost exactly a year later tens of thousands of lives have been lost. secretary kerry now says the president is talking with members of congress and key allies to make an informed decision on a response. meanwhile, half of americans can't even find the country on a map. that is not an exaggeration. recent polls show overwhelmingly that americans simply do not want to get involved in syria. it should be noted also that secretary kerry's tough language came before inspectors from the united nations could return any findings from syria. those inspectors ran into some danger of their own while examining one of alleged sites of this chemical attacks. fred? >> reporter: it was a pretty tough day for the u.n. weapons inspectors but they said also quite a productive day. their car came under fire right after they left from the hotel they were staying at. they said all of this happened in the buffer zone between the area controlled by the
